National Drive Electric Week Shines Spotlight on Nissan

Technically, September 15-21 is “National Drive Electric Week,” but, here at 171 Nissan, we think it’d be more apropos to simply call it “National Drive the Nissan LEAF Week.” In any case, the Nissan brand is certainly taking the opportunity to shine the spotlight brightly on its EV fleet, especially the LEAF. There are over 60,000 LEAF owners in the United States alone and many of them were out to celebrate their favorite car this week.

“With more than 60,000 U.S. sales and 50 percent market share among pure EVs this year, Nissan is the natural sponsor of National Drive Electric Week,” said Toby Perry, Nissan’s director of Electric Vehicle Marketing. “At events across the country, drivers of Nissan LEAF and other electric cars will get together to spread the word about the benefits of driving electric – lower operating costs, zero tailpipe emissions and they are just fun to drive.”

If you feel left out of the festivities this week, there’s an easy solution. Just come see us here at 171 Nissan and we’ll introduce you to the great green love of your life: your very own Nissan LEAF. You’ll be blissfully avoiding gas stations and celebrating driving electric—not just for a week but the whole year round—in no time.
